While the rest of Europe generally celebrates the end of World War II on 8 May, Amsterdam has brought the date forward to the 5th, the day the German troops surrendered in the Netherlands. Each year, the Bevrijdingsfestival allows city residents to listen to international groups and DJ's. In the evening, around 9 o'clock, a symphony concert is performed on a boat on the Amstel.
